Equality Act 2010
The Discrimination Act 1995 was replaced by the Equality Act which became law on 1 October 2010.
In relation to websites, The Equality Act 2010 puts a greater obligation on website owners and hosts to ensure that visually impaired visitors are not discriminated against. Under previous legislation a website had to pass the test that it was not impossible or unreasonably difficult for a disabled user to access. Under the Equalities Act 2010, the bar has been raised to the effect that a visitor must not be put at a substantial disadvantage, compared to a non-disabled user.
This website has been designed to ensure that it is easily accessible to visitors who are visually impaired:-
It uses ‘Verdana’ size 2 (10 pt) fonts in black / dark colours on a pale background. White or pale backgrounds with dark text are the benchmark combination; which also ensures that users with colour blindness are not disadvantaged.
All images on this website are supported by ‘alt text’.
Instructions for increasing font sizes in Internet Explorer are:-
1. Click on "View" in the menu and Select ''Text Size''
2. Select from the list of predefined text sizes ranging from ''Largest'' to ''Smallest
The text size can be changed in many browsers by holding down the ''Ctrl'' key and using a mouse scroll wheel to increase or decrease text size.
